@RS521:  I personally hate getting glitter in the mail, whether it’s a card, an invitation, etc., so my vote is for the one with a ribbon.

@RS521:  Glitter depends…I’ve seen glitter paper where the glitter doesn’t come off which is fantastic.  The glitter that gets all over everything is a pain – my friends jokingly refer to it as ‘glitter herpes’ (easy to get, easy to spread, impossible to get rid of).

I have a strong anti-glitter policy. Once our work used gitter covered Christmas cards and I swear that stuff was all over everything…for months. If you do opt for the glitter option make sure it doesn’t transfer or shed.

Can you keep looking? It sounds like you aren’t 100% sold on either of them.

@RS521:  Is it actually glitter, that flakes off and makes a mess? Then no, this would look more sweet 16. If it is embossing, which is sealed with heat and doesn’t come off, then yes, this will look polished and fancy. I am making our invites and they will have ribbon, embossing, eyelets and translucent white paper on top of sturdy paper.

@RS521:  I vote ribbon. I think its more sophisticated anyhow, plus glitter over everything BLOWS and I loathe it!

Perhaps you sould add a poll? 🙂

I LOVE the ribbon! My invitations also had a ribbon, and I think they are so elegant.
